Make a holiday apartment in Altura Town your home away from home

Tucked away in the south-eastern reaches of Portugal in the Algarve region is a fairly developed town that hosts a selection of shops, restaurants and bars. Visitors touring Algarve usually put up in holiday homes in Altura Town, being drawn there by the fact that it is relatively unspoilt and tranquil. This location also puts them within easy reach of the Atlantic Ocean coastline where they can bask in abundant sunshine or indulge in any one of several water sports. Altura is a picturesque spot where migratory birds are often spotted. HomeAway offers sun and adventure-seeking tourists an interesting range of holiday accommodation in Altura Town. Waterfront holiday villas and apartments are the most sought-after kind of holiday rental here. But even those who don’t manage to secure such accommodation will still have plenty of options to choose from that are not far from the beach.

Things to do

-Beaches: Most holidaymakers’ ideal holiday features hours spent stretched out on soft sands watching their skin turn a rich bronze. And the lengthy coastline of Altura will give them the opportunity to live out this fantasy. This coastline forms part of the protected Parque Natural da Ria Formosa which means visitors will enjoy the beauty of the beach without the congested hotels and entertainment spots that characterise other seaside locations.

-Hiking and biking: Those staying in Altura Town holiday homes will have acres upon acres of lush flora to hike through. The protected area of Ria Formosa supplies nature lovers with expansive marshlands and on climbing the heights of the Cacela Velha cliffs, hikers will have incredible panoramas at their disposal.

-Golf: Golfing enthusiasts who travel to this part of Portugal won’t be disappointed by the quality of courses available here. Tourists residing in Altura Town holiday rentals won’t have to journey more than 15 minutes before finding a top-class golf course where they can practice their swing while taking in some scintillating views. The Jack Nicklaus course which was designed by the golfing legend is a must-visit.

-Spain day trips: Spain is but 6 miles from this locale and it is well worth the short trip to cross the border. This will give holidaymakers whose palates have never experienced the wonderful clash of flavours that typify authentic Spanish cuisine the opportunity to indulge their taste buds. While one can enjoy these treats in the town of Ayamonte which is immediately after the border, it’s worth venturing further on to Sevilla.

-Tavira: If going to Spain seems a bit out of the way, visitors can head to the nearby town of Tavira. This will bring them face to face with astounding ancient buildings and traces of Roman occupation such as the bridge and city walls. While here holidaymakers can get to enjoy the taste of well-prepared fresh fish at ambient restaurants that overlook the ocean.

Weather in Altura Town

The weather couldn’t be more ideal for holidaying than it is at this corner of Algarve. Apart from the short cold season between November and February, holidaymakers can literally choose any month of the year for their stay in Altura Town holiday homes. From April to October this locale enjoys temperatures above 20°C with the hottest period being between July and August when temperatures average at 29°C. The cold season is not the typical sub-zero affair of other European localities. Temperatures during this time of year will rarely go below 15°C.

Travel to Altura Town

The Faro Airport is the main gateway to the Algarve region and visitors flying in from outside the country will want to book flights that land here. From this airport they will have 28 miles to travel in order to reach their Altura Town holiday apartments and villas. While taxis and rental cars are easily accessible from the airport, they may be a bit expensive. There are buses, however, that can take holidaymakers over this 45-minute journey for less.

Quiet, peaceful and all mod cons.

5 of 5
Lovely house with a beauriful garden and orchard. We ate figs, oranges, plums ans lemons. The bbq was huge and there was lots of wood. Lots of space and very clean. The pool was lovely and clean. Lots of loungers and towels. The water was very hot in the house which had all the equipment you could want. That makes a change.air con is quiet. Shops and bars are nearby. Reuben is on hand if you are stuck. Lovely man. We would love to go back.

Perfect apartment in lovely location

5 of 5
Just returned from 5 days in the apartment in Cabanas. I visited with my mum and sister,16, and we had a lovely few days. The apartment is spacious, clean and well equipped with great facilities. Jayne met us when we arrived and was lovely and incredibly accommodating, she was also kind enough to arrange transfers from Faro airport too. The apartment is a great size and has all you could need including very good WiFi! It’s cool and so we rarely needed the aircon and is also very quiet. Cabanas as a whole is a beautiful fishing town and has some lovely restaurants and cafes and the beach is easy to get to. We also recommend hiring bikes and cycling to Tavira. It truly was a perfect stay!
